Brown, Black, and Grey

Brown, Black, and Grey

I’ve been making good progress on our camping quilts recently. The rainbow one is quilted and next in line to be bound. Another one — made from pink log cabin blocks and sashed in brown — is at the quilter now and should be back in my hands next week. Theoretically, the rainbow quilt is for Papa and I and the pink/brown one is for Katie. That just leaves Tristan without a camping quilt. I have this great train ticket fabric that we used as a tablecloth for Tristan’s second birthday — look how little he is! — that I want to use as a back. I’m planning on using brown and black/grey log cabins for the front but here’s the problem. My stash is not burgeoning with brown and black/grey fabrics. Is yours? So, I’m looking for scraps. The smallest size I can use is 2″x3″. I have many scraps of other colors I can share, even selvedges for those who collect them. Anybody up for a trade?

    Wish I could help out. I’ve had a tough time finding grays for my yellow/gray quilt.

    i’ve got nothing in the scrap department. but i’m wondering this – if you use quilts when camping does that mean you don’t use sleeping bags? and what do you sleep ON? always trying to perfect our system, you know?

    I have a few, and I’m unlikely to ever use them. I’d love to send them to you.
